Bedrooms are one of the rooms that are difficult to decorate and are prone to the most clutter. We do so many more activities in our bedroom than we should. We eat, drink, study, watch TV, etc. so there are many reasons why our bedroom should be comfortable although we should not be doing all of those things in our bedrooms. We should make our bedrooms luxurious and convenient because we spend 8-12 hours sleeping on it. We should all aim to make our bedroom comfy and luxe as a hotel so that we can enjoy it and have a good night’s sleep.

The first step to decorating your bedroom is to choose a rug. Starting of with a rug will help you intentionally want your furniture and colors. Your rug should ideally match the colors of the rest of your house.
Bed, Bedboard and Bedding Sheets
You need a comfortable bed, a stylish headboard, and layered bedsheets. To make your bed look luxurious or like a 5 star hotel , ideally all white bedding will work best.
- Matching Light-colored linens (preferably white)
- Flat Sheets
- 300 thread count sheets
- Down Comforter + Duvet
- 2-4 Pillows
Choose sheets that look expensive and breathable such as 300-thread-count cotton, specifically Egyptian cotton, and instead of a fitted sheet, use two flat sheets. You also need a comforter and cotton duvet cover for more comfort and lux feel. You’ll also need comfy pillows or Euro shams.
2 Night Stand/Night Table
Nightstand and Night tables can be placed anywhere in the room, but in this case, we want them at each end of the bed. They are virtually the same thing, but a nightstand usually has at least one drawer in it. A bedside table does not have to have a drawer in it, and it can also be called a night table.
Dresser/Chest of Drawers
A Dresser and or Chest of Drawers is one of the essential pieces of furniture in any bedroom. Your dresser and or chest of drawers can be used as storage and help you avoid having clutter lying around. A Dresser is usually is low and long sand. A chest of drawers is typically tall and narrow. If you have a small bedroom, a chest of drawers may be better suited as it will save space. If you are sharing a bedroom, having both a dresser and a chest of drawers is ideal.
Seating or Bench
Another stylish way to make your room look luxurious is to add a bench on top of the bed. If you have more space, adding a chair near a window or bedside table is also ideal.
Stylish nightshade on your bed stand is one of the best ways to make your room look luxurious. Also, choosing a fixture or lamp with some time of bling such as gold, glass, or crystals will elevate the room as well.
It is best to place art in the bedroom directly over the bed or on the wall opposite the bed. Choose Art pieces that will match your room When hanging artwork above your bed or if you choose to hang it above your furniture, it should be 4-6 inches above that particular area.
Adding a mirror on the wall above each nightstand, behind any lamp or pendant light, can not only make a small space seem more prominent, but it makes the room luxe as well. You can also opt for mirrors instead of artwork in your bedroom.
Make sure your curtains match your decor and are raised high enough to make your bedroom looks larger and taller than it actually is.
Adding a potted plant, a light, and airy fern or flowers will also make your room look luxe and expensive.
In conclusion, the best way to make your room look luxurious is to keep it as simple as possible and avoid clutter. Choose pieces and furniture that is appropriate to the size of the room. Your linens and curtains are essential. Your lighting should be modern and glamorous, and your color palette needs to match your furniture.
